    1. POSTING A COMMENT ABOUT “KONY” DOESN’T HELP SAVE THE WORLD UNLESS WE ALL ACTUALLY GET OFF OUR ASSES TO DO SOMETHING.STOP DEPENDING ON OTHERS TO SOLVE PROBLEMS, WHEN WE CAN DO IT OURSELVES BUT JUST DON’T.THAT’S THE PROBLEM WITH AMERICA, THINKING DONATING TO A CHARITY OR SOMETHING WILL HELP, BUT IT DOESN’T DO SHIT.BUT SHARING MESSAGES ON FACEBOOK OR YOUTUBE DOESN’T DO EVEN “FUCKSHIT”.ALSO, CAPS LOCK MAKES YOU LOOK LIKE AN ANGRY moron.

    4. Hey, I am currently challenging myself to create my own manga. (and people please don’t spam) So with it I can progress to be able to do really great drawings of manga. Also if my manga I create will become quite good (mainly story wise) I will keep practicing to make it the best it possibly can be.

    6. Mark,

      I was raised on Kirby, Buscema, Adams, Giordano, Andru, Wood, Ploog, Wrightson, etc, etc…still love those guys. I now make my living (somehow) drawing caricatures at special events. I’ve never been into Manga, but this weekend I have a client who wants caricatures of their party guests drawn in Manga style. Thanks for these videos. Very helpful. I still am going to suck at this gig…but maybe a little less because of you.

    8. I really like your videos and u r an AMAZING artist and u should think about doing some female Manga faces from different angles because I draw the face, facing me and then go to a how to draw manga hair and most of the heads r at different angles so its a lttle harder for me to try and draw it …

I did a drawing of link recently and took me forever. For you, you could of done it in like 30 minutes. It took me weeks. If you want to see it I would be more then happy to share it with you. ๐Ÿ™‚ Your tutorials are very helpful, and very good. ๐Ÿ˜€ I also subscribed and I will be watching more of your tuts.

    16. Same problem here, I’m trying to improve my skills for nearly 2 years now and there is 0 progress… fucking hate that. I would love to draw but I just can’t. I fucking hate, that I have no single talent. It makes me angry and sad. T_T I bought several books, watched 100+ tutorials and I also bought an expensive graphic tablet for nothing. Skill comes with practice? Fuck your shit liars…

    17. How many hours a day did you spend practicing? The first two years i was drawing i would spend at LEAST 4 hours a day, first thing i did when i got up and last thing i did before i went to bed, and then even in bed with a moleskin. Practice does make improvement man dont give up!

    18. I am a pretty good artist, but I can’t draw circles well… I shake alot… But that turned out so well I just might! And yeah it does look a little bit like Death Note! Glad you didn’t draw a specific character, if you drew Light I would’ve had to kill u( kidding! But I do hate light) if u drew Ryuzaki my friend would’ve killed you, and if you drew Misa, then I would have to kill my boyfriend…

    19. that should be normal, perfection just can by archieved by “trying to be perfekt”, if youre trying to improve your skills, start with that.you should get alot better if you try to draw every line “perfect”, rather that draw a line and then erase it. its like, playing soccer, and beeing able to get the ball you just kicked back to your foot. you cant get better if you dont try to draw the best you can, in the first try. my tip for “young” artists: THROW AWAY YOUR RUBBERS, ITS DEVILSWORK

    20. no, but really try to draw nice and clean in the first place, that should improve your skills pretty fast, believe me. and if you try to draw manga, that is the first step to learn it, cause real manga is just about “perfection”, not like comic. archieve the maximum of expression and art by drawing the “minimum”.

    21. its not about the pencil, an “real” mangaka could skratch you a whole chapter with a stick in your garden…if you try to draw ANYTHING, start with your OWN. dont ask others, dont copy from others until youre able to draw a little bit on your own. its called “Personal Style”, you cant archieve that by copy others, or…using the same pencil, thats nearly idiotic.

    22. im so glad i found you, actually someone who knows what manga is about, and not some little kid drawing comic characters, and i actually see you published a manga yourself.and you keep on making videos im very grateful for that, its always good to know where to watch if you need some “inspiration”^^

    23. yea thats what i said, see for yourself, how should i know what youre actually able to draw, i just can say, if you want to draw “real” manga, you got to ink (actually alot of inking is done on pc). and charcoal, im using it alot, depends on what you use these charcoalpen thingis or the normal sticks, i actually never used the pens so i cant say anything about them, but with the charcoal”sticks” you wont be able to draw detailed enough, because you got no “pointy end”. try alcoholbased markers

    24. but like i said, if you wanna draw manga, you wont get along without ink, even if you are able to draw with the charcoal, i dont think you are skilled enough to use it(you said you didnt know about that stuff so i presume)you cant erase charcoal, there are actually speacial rubbers for that stuff, but seriously,you cant erase it,just painting over with white will help,and you will actually still beeing able to see it.if youre as good as he up there so you dont gotta erase,try.if not, try anyways

    31. The thing is that manga is not really a drawing style. It is a narrative style. Yes, there is a drawing stile that is generally related to it, but take a look at, say, Scott Pilgrim (yes, this is where my nickname came from). It doesn’t quite look like what people think when you talk about manga; however it is undeniably a manga. (Though some people say it isn’t. They just don’t know what they’re talking about.)

    32. (Continuing my last comment)Because manga is a narrative style, you can draw everything like manga, but if you arrange your panels like they’re arranged in American comics and use a lot of text and almost no lines to indicate movement, then it’s not manga. It doesn’t matter if the drawing style is identical to the one you normally see on manga books. But you can make a manga using a drawing style identical to Marvel or DC comics.

    34. i have a question!!! i realy want to learn to draw but i dont think im good at it i mean i doo have photographick memory si when i look at something its stays there long but is it possible to learn to draw or do you have to have some sort of born-with-talent in you

      No votes yet.
      Please wait...
    35. I’m sure you can if you practice and want to do so. Having a photographic memory is really helpful next time when you are looking at an object try to simplify it in regular geometrical shapes in your mind then try to draw them lightly in a peace of paper and use them as guidelines to put on some more details. The more you practice the better you will become ;D so don’t give up everyone can make progress if they want to some ppl improve faster and some others slower but this doesn’t really matter

    36. I find it odd that the hair comes out so much past the cheek. Anatomically correct on the face, but does he really have that much hair on the far side of his head?(if feel as though you could almost get rid of that entirely. Or maybe just add more hair to the near side of the head)

    38. Well, my draw started SO UGLY… I kept drawing it anyway, in the end, it had a so thin face and looked more “Disney” than manga, if you understand me. Anyway, I draw a mustache (a man’s mustache, not that mustaches that are mainstream now) and a little beard. He looked like a strange mix of Dan Kat๕ (Naruto) + Matsuda (Death Note) + Marshall Law (Tekken) + Alladin + Dude about 20 who sells sushi. It’s a weirdo mix, but it was nice… For what I’m used to draw, it was nice…

    47. Do you know that Christianity is correct? The world around us reveals that G-d DOES exist, and the historical evidence reveals that Jesus Christ really did come to this earth and there is overwhelming evidence that Jesus Christ really did physically rise from the dead. Jesus is coming again and the signs of the end times that were foretold in the Bible are coming to pass.

    49. “This won’t be line by line.” Don’t feel like that’s a hinder, your video says “How To” do something, and for anyone to really draw a face like that, they’d need to comprehend what the anatomy of the human head is and how to plot it’s form. This How To seems to be moderate guidance to help people understand that sort of anatomical approach. Your video here is great, keep it up!
